Motorola’s Android Tablet Likely To Be Called The Xoom?

| December 22, 2010 | Reply

During the All Things D: Dive into mobile event earlier this month we all saw Andy Rubin pull out the amazing looking tablet from Motorola running the Android Honeycomb OS.  Since then we have heard a lot of speculation as to the specs of this device and when we would hear more about a possible launch.  The tablet is said to be powered by the Tegra-2 chip, and feature a front and rear facing camera although other details are a bit sketchy right now besides the fact that it will be running Honeycomb.  I’m pretty sure that Motorola will be all the rage at CES this year if they have proven to pull it off once we see more of this mega tablet.  There has also been a lot of speculation as to the name of this device since we have heard Stingray and Everest being tossed into the mix, but it seems as though if trademarks are any indication we may have found the answer.  It seems Motorola has been very busy over the last couple of months filing trademarks all over the world for a major product line called the Motorola Xoom.  It has been said that Motorola is typically a company that normally doesn’t go through this big of a process unless these trademarks will certainly be used, which leads us to believe that the Xoom product line will be a major focus for Motorola moving forward.  The products that Motorola is looking to cover include mobile computers and related accessories, docks, cradles, mounts, holders, stands, carrying cases, covers, protective or decorative covers, batteries, power adapters, cables, connectors, headsets and speakers, hand held computers, lap top computers, tablet computers, electronic notepads, computers and mobile data communications apparatus, which basically spells out anything and everything tablet related.  What are your thoughts?  Drop us a comment below and let us know if you’re buying into this latest speculation.
